Finnish poker superstar Jens Kyllonen has done it again! Last night Kyllonen defeated fellow countryman Eelis Parssinen heads up on partypoker to claim his second Poker Masters Online PLO Series win earning him another $200,000. By finishing second, Parssinen now holds the overall championship lead with five events left to be played. The winner of the Poker Masters Online PLO Series will receive a custom Purple Jacket along with a $50,000 entry into the $1.5 million guaranteed Main Event this Saturday on partypoker.

The final table started with five contenders for the $200,000 top prize lead by Kyllonen himself. The Finn drew first blood at the final table as well, busting Laszlo Bujtas in fifth place. This crucial pot saw the Hungarian pro all in with a set versus Kyllonen’s wrap. Creating a pot worth 4 million chips with 7.5 million chips in play, Kyllonen hit the best possible river card as he filled up his straight.
With a commanding chip lead, Kyllonen did not make any mistakes, knocking out Robert Romanello next in fourth place. Once again., Kyllonen had a wrap with a pair, and this time he was a favorite against Romanello’s overpair. The turn gave Kyllonen trips and he sent the Welshman to the rail.
In a three-handed all Finland battle, Kyllonen kept the pace high sending Aku Joentausta to the rail in third place shortly thereafter. Kyllonen held a pretty looking king-king-queen-queen double suited against Joentausta’s aces and flopped a set of queens to bring us down to just two players.
Heads-up play lasted for 30 minutes as Parssinen managed to find a quick double up to make for an entertaining match. Kyllonen, however, kept chipping up and ultimately ended things when he flopped a set of kings versus Parssinen’s set of nines.

Nemeth, Blom & Cochrane Square Off at $25k Final Table
The big action continues this afternoon as three players remain in the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha event that sees only three remaining players. Andras Nemeth leads the way ahead of Gavin Cochrane and a short-stacked Viktor Blom with a $430,000 top prize awaiting the winner. Aku Joentausta already busted in fourth place for $96,750 while Joao Vieira took home $75,250 for finishing fifth and George Wolff collected $58,109 for sixth.
Jens Kyllonen was one of the early Finish chip leaders and the Poker Masters Online: PLO Championship contender ended the day as the top stack. He’ll now head to the Event #7 final table looking to seize control of that points race.
Kyllonen’s countryman Eelis Parssinen is back at a Poker Masters Online final table and over the 1,500,000 chip mark. Bujtas Laszlo is just under 2,000,000, while Aku Joentausta is just over 1,000,000.
Roberto Romanello is the short stack, but the partypoker Team Pro made good on his PMO: PLO debut.

The action was missed, but a nearly 1,000,000 chip pot is going to Bujtas Laszlo. The Hungarian held pocket kings against Dan Shak’s pocket jacks and the bigger pair held.
Shak is now the shortest stack left in Event #7, while Laszlo has cracked the Finish top three.
Across the back-half of Level 12, two Finish players went in opposite directions.
First, Niko Soininen was eliminated and then Eelis Parssinen doubled through Jesper Hougaard to move over 1,000,000.
As it stands, Aku Joentausta, Parssinen, and Jens Kyllonen round out a Finish top three.
Dan Shak and Sweden’s Bengt Sonnert started the hand with nearly identical stacks – before getting all-in on the flop with big pocket pairs.
Shak’s aces held and he is now over 500,000 for the first time today.
After the elimination of Espen Myrmo, the final 12 players redrew on the final two tables.
An update of the chip counts is provided below:
Finish PLO specialist Jens Kyllonen (pictured) is over 1,000,000 chips and at the top of the Event #7 leaderboard. Countryman Aku Joentausta is also over that threshold, while Sami Kelopuro was eliminated after the three table redraw.
